Book Zach Sherwin

ZACH SHERWIN (aka MC MR. NAPKINS) has loved comedy for as long as he can remember, and he wrote his first rap when he was ten years old, so it was only a matter of time until he combined his two favorite art forms into one unique hip-hop comedy act.  Sherwin spits fresh, nerdy rhymes about everything from his humiliating sixth-grade defeat at the Ohio State Spelling Bee to blood pressure measuring cuffs.  He was named Boston’s Best Comic of 2009 by the Boston Phoenix, and in July 2009 he performed to much acclaim in Montreal's prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.  He has shared the stage with hip-hop and comedy acts ranging rom Jay-Z to Joel McHale to N.E.R.D. to Mike Birbiglia, has appeared on VH1, CNN Headline News, and the front pages of CollegeHumor and YouTube, and was featured in Sierra Mist's recent "Funny Breaks" promotion.  “Napkins has exploded onto the comedy scene and is now considered by fans and comedy peers to be one of Boston’s hottest must-see acts.” – Boston Phoenix. “It’s like Weird Al and Eazy-E had a kid.” – A blog Napkins found while Googling himself.
